3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at PPC. Ridiculous pour: ink with a chocolate dust sprinked coffee head. Looks like nutmeg dusted atop coffee. Sweet chocolate bar aroma with unfortunate apple/ oxidation notes. Taste similar: mega milk chocolate, mild nutmeg and cinnamon, not enough chili pepper heat to balance. FiancÚ ratibg: 3.9
